Moving UP 4-8-8-4 #4014 in 1962
Author: TonyJ

It is January 5, 1962 and UP "Big Boy" #4014 is on its way to a new home at the Pomona County Fairgrounds. There isn't much background to most of the photos, but I'm guess the photos were taken at Yermo. -George Majors photo - Tony J.

Looking along the top of 4014's boiler, a UP fan might identify the location. George Majors photo - Tony J.

Over the boiler looking west, Elepant Hill. Agreed, Yermo.

On the left under the squiggly line is the Yermo Depot. Cool pic, as I've never seen an over view of Yermo like this before. The water tower and some of the out buildings were still there when I was forced up there in '78. Great pictures! -BMT

I am happy to report that #4014 looks as good today (well, I saw it in 2003 anyway) as it did in 1962!

I visited the 4014 at the Pomona County Fairgrounds in 1962, little realizing it just arrived there. - Tony J

They say that #4014 is in the best condition of all the remaining Big Boys and would be the best candidate for restoration to operation if that were ever to happen. (I'm not holding my breath)

Actually I here the 4018 in Texas is the best candidate, remember the possible Movie called the same a few years back where they were going to get it going? Alot of posts on TO for that one.. Money fell through and never panned out..

Two VERY dedicated volunteer members have spent a LOT of their own money and a HUGE number of hours in work on 4014 and it certainly shows.

Any who visit will be astounded.

Hats of to the both of 'em!!
